Both Claymore and Freezing are in a world were female warriors accept flesh in their bodies to obtain powers strong enough to save mankind from "demons". Both female main characters are these warriors and, at first, cold and cruel towards everyone. The male main characters both believe that these girls are really kind and chose to help them. And the cruel warrior girls seem to loosen up and become more kind towards this guy.
Both have girls (Claymores/Pandora) fighting monsters (Youma/Nova). And not only that, both are part human part monster and both have limits/extents to which they can use that monster part of them to an extent. If you like one, you'll 100% like the other.
Why there aren't more people recommending claymore is beyond me. Be warned there are potential/insignificant spoilers that follow:
-A large number of girls who belong to an organization/school whose purpose is to defeat monsters/aliens.
-In order for these girls to match fighting ability they have to have the monsters/aliens DNA bonded to them
- If they use to much of the monster/alien power they will become a monster/aliens
-There are ranks of who is better and who is worse in the organization/school
-You have male lead who has is younger and has a strong emotional connection to the female lead
-You have a female lead who can tap into the alien/monster ability to a level the other girls cant/haven't yet.
-Both stories have technical fighting terminology
-Each high ranking girl has an ability they're significantly in tuned with
-Both have lots of bloody fighting
-A serious undertone
-A past/historical female who was the greatest of them all
Need I say more? Go read Claymore
The theme of young girls turned into super weapons is present in both manga series.
Both series features a regular main protagonist whose life is changed forever after meeting a certain female character. From there, they form a strange bond.
Both series has supporting characters who also has powers of their own rights. With that right, they do what they want but learn best to control them.
Both series has a lot of action, drama, some comedy, and violence. Both series features a darker tone as the series progresses where some psychological themes are introduced along with a dark story.
Same author, very similar art style. Both have a soft guy and 2 girls who like the guy. Both have special powers: Freezing has Pandoras and Limiters, Re:birth has Takers with a level up system. Both have a guy who doesn't want his partner killing other human beings.
- Both manga have a horrible Academy where violence is very acceptable and nobody gives a damn.
- A lot of fights.
- In Freezing, the Pandoras choose a younger male as their Limiter (partner), while in Shitsurakuen, the guys choose a girl and draw from them the weapon.
- Both have sci-fi elements. In both we see a virtual reality, (Carnival in Freezing, Exaclan in Shitsurakuen) where the players are able to feel real pain.
